7:04 am
88 degrees. so that takes care of your forecast for today that got a seal of approval. lets see if bob kelly's traffic report gets the same? i don't think so. >> it has been a crazy morning, sue 7:04 waking up on a friday. i'm hoping everybody can take a deep breath and calm down. we have had nasty accidents all morning long. latest one here is woodhaven road eastbound closed between thorndale, thornton and a contacted my road, all eastbound traffic coming off boulevard you have to use comly road or stick with the boulevard, down towards grant avenue. we had an earlier accident on 422, that is off to the side, we had closure last night of the blue route that has been opened backup, we are dealing with the crash here westbound lanes of the schuylkill expressway, and right at the roosevelt boulevard, it is not too much of the shoulder there but what type of shoulder we have police are on the scene and of course as we mentioned throughout the studio come on by lots of good stuff freeze for everybody, market feet
7:05 am
closed between third and fourth and, and, street buses there. and, block party, until later and, 11:00 o'clock. mike and alex, back to you. we do have some, news that has come into us, in the last couple of minutes, concerning the protest out in north carolina but new situation in tulsa, oak a third straight night of protest in charlotte north carolina after police shoot and killed a man earlier this week. a curfew was put into place at midnight the by mayor and she said it was needed and that the guard needed there on the streets of charlotte right now. police say keith lemont scott had a gun, and was not obeying their command when he was shot tuesday. the his tamly says, no, he was holding a book. the there is growing pressure to release dash cam video of the incident. the people hoff seen it say
7:06 am
you cannot tell if it is a gun or a book. attorneys for that family say it is not clear because scott was holding anything at all. officer charge with manslaughter has surrendered to authorities and released on $50,000 bail. officer betty shelby. she's facing first degree manslaughter charges and prosecutors are saying that she quote reacted unreasonablely during the traffic stop. this is her mug shot right here. video shows terence croucher walking away from officers with his arms in the air when he was shot. >> we have brought one of the best attorneys in the city, into talk about this. so, is there mug shot. she turned herself in. not advising. she turned herself this to her own police department. >> i expect that to be fairly quick. she was released on bail fairly quickly as well but they wanted to keep this moving forward. >> did this just happen a week ago tonight that shooting took place and already charges are filed. >> i think that was pretty
7:07 am
quick to return charges. i'm zooming the district attorney warranted to get this out there. they had compelling videotape. that was deciding factor. >> why felony manslaughter in the first degree what does that mean. >> it means that she's not accused of intentional murder. she didn't wake up this morning thinking she wanted to kill someone but she did it that was unjustified and exposed her to significant penalty. >> it resulted in unreasonable actions which led to her shooting. they have to prove the prosecution that she acted unreasonablely in this case. >> she acted recklessly, unreasonablely, didn't react this a way an ordinary police officer with appropriate training should react. that video seems to support that. >> if you are her defense attorney, what do you do? it seems to me you need to see what her vantage point was what she was looking at. >> that will be one of the key issues in the case. we saw video but not from the same vantage point which
7:08 am
officer now defendant was looking. it is not clear whether she could have seen for example that the window was up and he was reaching in he would the not have had the ability to reach in. and she was clear doing a walk around present this happened. is that the key point. >> i don't think it is not the key point. he was walking backward. he had his hand in the air. there was no gun or any weapon involve at that point. while it is a point i don't know fit is key point. >> officer said she was reaching or going in to a car for a gun and that is why she was afraid. >> is there a still photo of the window up on the driver side. >> again in the clear she could have seen that the window was up but there was no view of the gun. he could be reaching for keys or anything. that is not good movements from an officer perspective but still no additional gun. >> is that an open carry state. >> i don't know. >> interesting, i have not personally confirmed this but there is a report that officer shelby's husband was in the
7:09 am
helicopter, for providing the shot that we have shown you, any number of times, this one right here. it seems to me that would be a person who would be called to the witt these stan. >> i have heard that as well. if that is true he is likely to be called if he captured that video which is what i heard. he might be defense witness and prosecution witness because he has to authenticate video as person who took it and establish vantage point of the video. her own husband might be a witness against her or some respect to her, we apologize for that piece of tape, we should edit that out after the shooting happen. rocco, good to see you. we will talk about the north carolina case too. 7:09. police are investigating an overnight deadly car crash, police say happened at front street and woodlawn avenue in florence township. one woman was pronounced dead, we will keep you posted as new details come in the news room.
